There is a mystery behind the metallic luster in Marie Porterfield Barry’s lines. A child of the Appalachian Mountains, her works exude geologic time through seductive figures that carry a strange familiarity. Each drawing drifts towards you with an arresting gaze. Polycephalous forms call for a second glance. What appeared simple reveals a richness beckoned forth by every detail. What began as a portrait ends as a relationship, the viewer suspended in a fleeting vision, eager to return.
Hello ETC is pleased to present Nimbus at Ritual Coffee Roasters. Twenty five works from UK based artist Marie Porterfield Barry will be on view from August 21 through Oct 21. For more info visit www.helloetc.com or email us at email@example.com.

Did you know that a bite from a Grizzly Bear is strong enough to crush a bowling ball?! Or that the California Grizzly is one of the few bears that doesn't have to hibernate?
We learned all this nifty info, and more, whilst researching our next seasonal espresso!
And so, in the spirit of big bears, state flowers, and our pursuit for the golden cup, we present our newest seasonal espresso blend: Ursa Major.
Dip your cup into this overwhelmingly summer-like espresso. A combination of complex floral aromas, berry & citrus acidity, and brown sugar sweetness, this espresso features three distinct coffees that come together in a way that reminds us of a fresh fruit pie cooling on the windowsill. Get it before the bears do!

Coming soon to all Ritual locations!
It seems like cold-brewed coffee is all the rage these days. And why not? The sun is out, and we're all looking for a summer refresher that also puts some pep in the step.
The absolute best cold brews that we've tried were made with this humble Japanese appurtenanace - The Mizudashi Cold Brew Coffee Pot. It takes all the mess and fuss out of the cold brewing process, and sits comfortably in the fridge, always at the ready. The super-special fine mesh screen is the secret weapon on this tempered glass beauty, and requires nothing else. Add coffee, add water, brew overnight, repeat all summer.
You can pick one up in any of our stores, or get one online here: http://www.ritualroasters.com/store/coldbrew/
Oh, and be sure to take a gander at our foolproof brew guide made especially for the Mizudashi! http://www.ritualroasters.com/brew-guide/
